Snow Day Apple Pie

Kansas got hit by a pretty large snowstorm on Tuesday, and we ended up with two snow days because of it. It was a dream come true. Wednesday I wanted to make the most of the forced time off and decided to bake my first apple pie from scratch. Scott had been wanting me to make one for a while, and his mom even gave me a pie crust that had been passed down to her (which added to the pressure). I had never made a pie crust before, so I wasn’t very confident that it would turn out, but I was pleasantly surprised! I forgot to take any photographs once it was done though; next time perhaps.

It wasn’t a special recipe, so I won’t post it here. But I used a butter/shortening combination for the crust, and just cinnamon and sugar for the filling with the apples. It was quite simple really. After I put the pie in the oven I noticed that my crust edges weren’t very pretty, so I have something to work on next time. 🙂

264/365 – Brownies and Milk

It is a perfect night for chocolate, that is all I am going to say. Other than that these scrumptious (and insanely chocolatey and rich) brownies are made from scratch by my amazing boyfriend.
